Far from any nightlife or fine dining on the more popular Las Vegas Strip, but all of that is just a convenient shuttle or car ride away
Located in Henderson, the second largest city in Nevada, this Courtyard by Marriott is 15 to 20 minutes from the Strip, the densely packed three-and-a-half-mile-long stretch of hotel-casinos in the heart of Las Vegas. Though close to a local casino with its own microbrewery, the hotel is within walking distance to virtually no other nightlife. A variety of chain restaurants, however, are within walking distance such as an Olive Garden, Joe's Crab Shack, Outback Steakhouse, TGI Friday's, and Blueberry Hill Restaurant and Lounge.
Up until about a decade ago, the area surrounding Las Vegas' towering guest room buildings and miniature icons of Western and Egyptian civilization was just a stretch of red desert land. But the development of luxury resorts as distant as 40 minutes from the Strip has extended the area of Vegas fun minus the constant crowds. Never mind the suburban sprawl -- and in some cases a major beltway -- or the lack of in-hotel theater performances. Here, there's natural drama, like the desert oasis of Lake Las Vegas. Often, gaming takes a backseat.
